What's In Season?

I have seen this a lot lately so I thought I'd put it up here for you all and for me to refer back too!  I also pinned it on Pinterest.  Funny thing is, is this true for ALL states?  I wonder if it's different here in AZ because of the heat.  I do know that since I have been eating clean it is hard to find really good produce here during the summer because it is so dang hot.  There aren't very many Farmer's Markets to attend and a lot of my favorite veggies you simply can't find.  Usually during the summer to ensure I get good veggies I buy frozen.  Did you know that you should buy in this order?  Fresh, frozen, canned?  So, even though it's frozen and uses some of it's nutrients, it's still a better option than canned.  Occasionally I will buy an organic basket from Bountiful Baskets.  The last basket I got didn't disappoint, but I wished there were more veggies than fruit even though it's supposed to be a 50/50 ratio.  Oh well, I guess it's the price I pay for living in the desert.  I secretly am jealous of all of you that live in produce-friendly-in-the-summer-states!   Here is the chart!

Thank you HellaWella for this!
